Hi I'm Mike

I come from Northern Colordo. I'm a Husband, Father, Grand Father, Insurance agent and a Documentary film maker & I'm a Mormon

About Me

I've done commercial insurance for more than 20 years. I spent almost 20 years producing, writing and researching Documentry films on cotroversial subjects involving alleged government abuse. I have enjoyed the film making because it was a part of History, that I hold dear. I love to fly fish and go shooting. I have a small flair for photography and I love History, especially Church History. I joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints over 33 years ago and this single act of clairity has been my Salvation in this life and has given me such wonderous things as my eternal companion, five wonderful children and eleven beautiful Grand children. And if I'm found worthy on the last Day I have the Lord's Promise of Eternal Life with my wife and family- what more could you ask for?

Why I am a Mormon

I have hundreds of reasons why I am a Mormon, and the list grows daily as I learn more of the Lord's Gospel. When I asked questions of my previous faith, the answers were generally the same, "...one must have Faith inorder to endure to the end and then be rewarded with the answers to the mysteries of God..." The problem it seemed, was that most everything was a mystery and there were no other answers than that, have faith and you'll be blessed. Well, I believe in the concept of exhibiting faith, but, I thought it should lead to knowledge that would increase Faith, not just faith for the sake of faith. Don't misunderstand, faith is needed everyday to bridge the gaps of your knowledge with God's Grace, but knowledge is desired and available in the Lord's Gospel. This was the keen desire that led me to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and the Lord's answers to my questions about His mysteries. I still don't have all the answers and won't have them all in this life, but I do have many more than I ever had before my journy in the lord's way. For this, I am forever greatful and it fills me with His blessings every day. For I know that He lives and loves us and he will return to reign upon the earth as the Christ, the Son of the living God, and I pray that I might witness this day of all days in his Holy name, even Jesus Christ. Amen

How I live my faith

Living my Faith is a daily exercise in Scripture study and service to others. I am not perfect, so I do fail, almost daily, but then I partake of the Lord's great gift, the Atonement and start the next day anew, and try to live the life of service and study He intends for us. I am responcible for our church buildings maintinance, and the running of the buildings audio/visual system. In the past I have been a nursery leader, one of the best jobs in the Church! And I have taught the three , eleven and fourteen year olds. I have been in the congrgational leadership doing missionary work, and a Boy Scout leader, and I have served at the multi congrgational leval ( known as the "Stake" leval) in Missionary Work. And I have served as a member of the Sunday school presidency. Service is the hall mark of the Church , there are no 'paid' leaders in the Church, so there is plenty of work for all to do. All of this service has been a wonderful expieriance that has given me many blessing and many great friends whom I served with over the years. The key to all of this is a thing we call the Priesthood. It is the power of God and is given to us the members of the Church, to act in His sted to Bless each other and all mankind. If done in Rightiousness it is very powerful and effective, in many ways it is miraculous in it's effect and amazing in it's abilty to create unity amongst God's people. It is, with Faith , the glue that binds the Gospel of Christ into the Faith that saves peoples' lives both temporally and Spiritually. I try to be worthy of it's exercise every day and I try and bless other lives when ever the opportunity presents itself, which is often if you keep your Spiritual eyes open. This has all combined to provide great growth for me and my family that would not have been possible otherwise.
